    Chicago’s First Steakhouse Gene & Georgetti Supports National Adoption Month

    in Current Events

    Joining Mary E. today will be Michelle Durpetti, daughter of proprietors Tony and Marion Durpetti and granddaughter of founder Gene Michelotti. Also, joining us will be Molly Philosophos Director of Development with Hephzibah Children's Association. 


    Chicago legend Gene & Georgetti, nestled under the El tracks at 500 N. Franklin St., supports National Adoption Month in November by donating a portion of proceeds from all dessert sales- including handmade Tiramisu, Chocolate Tuxedo Mousse Cake, and their famous Italian Lemon Crème Layer Cake- to Oak Park based Hephzibah Children’s Association.   


    Hephzibah’s Group Homes are where abused and neglected children come to heal and grow, where they can be free of fear, worry, and loneliness. Their family based services renew and strengthen family bonds and their foster care services create new, loving and secure family ties. Hephzibah’s day care program offers an award winning educational experience for children in the community — regardless of their family’s ability to pay. 


    Since opening in 1941, Gene & Georgetti is still family owned and operated. Co-founder Gene Michelotti’s daughter Marion Durpetti and her husband Tony Durpetti purchased the restaurant in 1990 after the passing of her father. Marion’s cousin Richard Ciota serves as general manager while their daughter Michelle Durpetti runs marketing and events.  "We are thrilled to bring some attention to and donate toward Hepzibah during National Adoption Month. As a family who has enjoyed the blessings of adoption, this is a cause very close to our heart," says the Durpetti Family.

    National Radon Action Month with Bill Long

    in Health

    Doctors of the USA welcomes Bill Long, Director, Center for Radon and Air Toxics, to talk about how to protect yourself and your family from radon. Listen in as he shares the dangers of radon and how you can protect your family’s health by testing your home for radon gas in 2015.


    Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer, estimated to cause about 21,000 deaths per year. It can be found all over the U.S. Testing is the only way to know if you and your family are at risk from radon. EPA and the Surgeon General recommend testing all homes. Radon reduction systems work and they are not too costly. Some radon reduction systems can reduce radon levels in your home by up to 99%. For new homes, radon-resistant construction techniques can be effective in preventing radon entry. When installed properly and completely, these simple and inexpensive techniques can help reduce indoor radon levels in homes.


    Bill Long is the Director of the Center for Radon and Air Toxics in EPA’s Indoor Environments Program. He has over 20 years of experience directing national and international environmental programs to improve air quality and save lives at the US EPA.
